Though it could be argued that the above headline is an uninformed exaggeration, the fact remains that while the human species during the second millennium did make considerable progress in every field of knowledge and technological endeavour, it has to this day utterly failed to address the political, religious, and social issues that tolerate — and in some cases actively contribute — to the blatant denial of all basic democratic principles including the December 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights whose preamble and in Article 1 unequivocally proclaim the inherent rights of all human beings:
“Disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people . . . All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”
Despite the existence of such a righteous Declaration, a misnomered humanity — still hungover from World War II and experiencing pangs of conscience over Nazi persecution of the Jews while forgetting the millions of non-Jews who died — stood idly by while armed Jewish terror gangs ethnically cleansed a record 500 Palestinian towns and villages and forced the exodus (the heartstring tugging Hollywood film Exodus was about Jews, not Palestinians) of more than 700,000 unarmed Palestinian men, women, and children whose barbaric treatment is now referred to as the Nabka (catastrophe).
Though the Palestinian people were in no way responsible for the Holocaust — they did not even offer to fight on the side of the Nazis as did the Zionists (http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Israel/Zionism_AgeDictators.html) — the freedom worshiping and hypocritical West led by a not so Great Britain, was prepared to offer Palestine and its people as placatory compensation to the Zionist cause. So today, after almost seventy years of pernicious, persistent, and unjust persecution, 7.1 million displaced Palestinians worldwide remain as the most protracted and largest of any refugee problem.
In the meantime, as Zionist controlled Western Governments and mainstream media with their combined double standards and hypocrisy continue spectating at leisure, the Palestinian people will continue to be stateless prisoner refugees on their own land and in adjoining Arab states; continue to be subject to air, sea, and land blockades that prevent the import of essential foods, medical supplies, and rebuilding materials; continue to be denied freedom of movement even on Palestinian designated territories; and continue to exist under the constant threat of yet another barbaric Israeli military assault like last summer’s Operation protective Edge in Gaza which also used them as guinea pigs on which to test new weaponry for Israel’s booming military trade.
In keeping with Zionism’s rationale that Palestinian existence impedes Israel’s insatiable requirement for more land, Palestinians will continue to be ethnically cleansed; will continue to see their children being systematically detained by the military and police who subject them to violent physical and verbal abuse, humiliation, painful restraints, hooding, threats with death, physical violence, and sexual assault against themselves or members of their family, and denial of access to food, water, and toilet facilities; and will continue to be subject to Nazi-style arbitrary arrest, beatings, torture, and indefinite imprisonment without charges or due process for up to ten or more years without knowledge of when or if they will ever be released under Israel’s Administrative Detention Orders.
And as if all that were not enough, they will continue to be subject to attacks against themselves and their property — including the burning of their olive groves which are the only means of livelihood for many — by deranged savages from illegal Israeli settlements; will continue to have their properties demolished, their resources including water stolen or deliberately contaminated and have their land expropriated by a “God’s chosen people” from the “only democracy in the Middle east”; will continue to see the area of their occupied lands being gradually diminished as more and more illegal Jewish settlements are established; and finally, they will continue to be amazed at how supposedly civilised societies including Israeli Jews can be witness to all of this and either do nothing or actually approve of or applaud.
So what does the future hold for Palestinians now that Benjamin Netanyahu has just snatched victory from the jaws of defeat by declaring prior to the vote that his re-election would would ensure against there being a Palestinian state? Netanyahu’s statement was reported in the mainstream media with some apparent surprise. Surprise? But why the surprise? Even before its bribed and paid for inception Israel had no intention of peaceful coexistence with its neighbours; no intention of honouring UN resolutions or respecting international law including human rights; and certainly no intention of considering a two state solution. Furthermore, Netanyahu’s “no Palestinian state” declaration was not the first by a Jewish leader. David Ben-Gurion, — the primary founder and the first Prime Minister of Israel — believed in the abolition of partition and the occupation of all of Palestine.
“Take the American declaration of Independence. It contains no mention of territorial limits. We are not obliged to fix the limits of the State.”
Moshe Dayan, Jerusalem Post, 08/10/1967.
“The settlement of the Land of Israel is the essence of Zionism. Without settlement, we will not fulfil Zionism. It's that simple.”
Yitzhak Shamir, Ma'ariv, 02/21/1997.
“In strategic terms, the settlements (in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza) are of no importance." What makes them important, he added, was that "they constitute an obstacle, an unsurmountable obstacle to the establishment of an independent Arab State west of the river Jordan.”
Binyamin Begin, (son of the late Menahem Begin and a prominent voice in the Likud party writing in 1991, Quoted on page 159 of Findley's Deliberate Deceptions)
Netanyahu’s re-election makes it very clear, even to the uninformed and particularly Americans, that the majority of Israelis share his views and that for decades Israel has gone along with the “Peace Talks” charade so as to play for more time while pursuing its Zionist goal of by any means driving out the Palestinians and stealing their land. There never has been any Israeli intentions for a two-state solution, for peace, or for granting legal and human rights to the Palestinian people. So now as there is no more pretence as to Israeli intentions, let there be no more hypocrisy, double standards, political correctness, and fear of being branded an anti-Semite. Instead let there be universal recognition of what Israel actually is: A lying, cheating, conniving, thieving, murdering, racist, Apartheid state which has undermined the concept of Western democracy by resorting to blackmail, bribery, bullying, and unjustified accusations of “Holocaust denial” or “anti-Semitism” so as to censor and silence criticism of its international law violations and barbaric crimes against humanity.
The Nuremberg Trials (backed by the victorious allies) punished Nazis guilty of crimes against the Jewish people, will the International Criminal Court in the Hague (opposed by Israel and the USA) have the courage to punish Israelis guilty of crimes against the Palestinian people?
